The aim of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development is to develop a world-class institution that is closely related to local experience, knowledge and research in one of the countries that is most affected by climate change.
In its first year and a half, ICCCAD has trained more than 316 professionals from 40 countries. Going forward, the centre will scale up research, monitor and improve graduate programmes, develop a year-round curriculum and pilot ‘commercial’ short courses for business professionals.
Based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, the centre uses its surroundings as a living laboratory on climate change and development.
